Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Enhanced Resolution 2016

My world is shrinking to fit my size
No more travels far and wide
Less is more put to the test.
Resolved, I receive more than I can give
With expectation I look ahead.

Quick enough a challenge came.
Doctor found upon my back
Basal cell cancers he would remove.
Procedure for me is old hat
But how to manage the bandage change?

Clearly I cannot by myself
I will have to ask for help.
Foreign to my can-do soul
I accept what must be done
I’ll ask my friends.

At home with foreign destinations
I stalled at walking down the hall
To knock on doors to state my quest
To apartment neighbors on my floor.
Five lovely women all said “yes”.

With zip-lock bag of necessaries
I appear to bare my back
To ministrations while we talk.
Novel way for back-fence chats
To bring us close.
